Widening and Reconstruction for the Remainder of 2014

With the opening of U.S. Route 202 to six through lanes between the Swedesford Road/Route 252 Interchange in Tredyffrin Township and the Route 401 Interchange in East Whiteland Township (Section 320) in late September, construction for the remainder of the year will take place mainly along the southbound side between the Route 401 and U.S. Route 30 interchanges in East Whiteland Township (Section 330).  Crews will complete follow-up tasks in Section 320 through October, when all work on the almost 4 year widening and reconstruction project will finish. Get the details of current construction here.

During all upcoming work on Route 202, PennDOT will maintain two lanes of traffic in each direction during periods of heavy use to minimize the impact of construction on users of the busy commuter route. We will continue to utilize this website to keep you informed about the progress of construction and any planned off-peak or weekend lane restrictions that may occur.

Q. When will the railroad bridge be repainted?

A. The bridge will be repainted as part of Section 320 construction. Originally, the bridge was to be repainted under the Section 311 project. But that plan would have required extensive and expensive traffic control measures, with nighttime lane closures to sand blast and repaint small sections in time to reopen the lane by the following morning. Instead, the bridge will be sanded and repainted in larger sections when traffic is shifted for extended periods while the roadway is rebuilt, all at a significant savings.
